PREPARATION
1.
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F.
PREPARING THE PUFF PASTRY DOUGH
2.
Lightly oil (or butter) an 9x9 inch baking dish. Lay the puff pastry down on the bottom.
3.
Put this into the oven until the puff pastry is brown (about 10-12 minutes). When it's down, remove it from the oven and set it aside.
MAKING THE MASHED POTATOES
4.
Follow the steps in the Dependent Recipes section to make the mashed potatoes. For this recipe, there really can never be enough mashed potatoes, so feel free to make 1.5X the mashed potatoes (you will use them :-).
MAKING THE GROUND BEEF AND VEGETABLES
5.
Cook the ground beef until it's cooked/browned, drain any fat, set aside.
6.
Add olive oil to a large saucepan. Saute the carrots until they begin to get tender.
7.
Add in the onions and saute until they begin to become translucent.
8.
Add in the cooked ground beef.
9.
Season with black pepper and thyme.
10.
Add the butter and peas.
11.
Sprinkle the flour over the pan and then stir this in.
12.
Add tomato paste, wine and the Worcestershire sauce. Let this reduce, cooking off the alcohol from the wine.
13.
Add the chicken stock. Allow this to reduce down until it begins to get quite thick.
ASSEMBLING THE PIE
14.
Add the ground beef and vegetable mixture on top of the browned puff pasty dough.
15.
Spoon the mashed potatoes on top, flatten them out with a spoon.
16.
Glaze the top with the egg.
17.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the top of the potatoes begins to brown.
TO SERVE
18.
Poach an egg for each serving. Gently place one egg on top of each serving when plating. Enjoy!.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
If you want to get fancy: about 3-4 minutes before the shepherd's pie is to be removed from the oven, take it out and make 4 egg-sized indentations in the mashed potatoes on top and crack and egg into each. Put the shepherd's pie back into the oven and let the eggs poach in situ.
